Memorial Day is coming up and I always look forward to spending a long weekend with family, sort of kicking off summer. Memorial Day is also the perfect time to score some really great deals!
This past week, the moms at Moms Check In have been talking about simple ways to give back. We discussed toy drives, doing charity 5K’s with family, food pantries and other ideas. It just feels good to be able to give back when we can. The world offers us so much, so we should repay in kind anytime that we can!
This month, Coupons.com makes it even simpler to give back. And the best part? You can give back to a worthy cause and save some money shopping at your favorite stores. All you have to do is go to Coupons.com/BCRF and use any offer on the page. When you do, Coupons.com will give 10% of your purchase price to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The math is simple: let’s say you buy your family some new clothes at Kohl’s for the summer. You total pre-tax price is $100. Thanks to your purchase, Coupons.com will donate $10. You can now feel good knowing that your purchase is helping to find a cure for breast cancer.
I’ve been scoping out their sales and there are a few I’m taking advantage of, including the 50% off kids clearance at Target! There’s also a $5 off a $25 purchase at TOMS! Ummm, summer is here and I’m totally buying a new pair of TOMS!!
Coupons.com has cash back offers, coupon codes, and product deals for your favorite stores including Macy’s, Sephora, Gap, and more. With Memorial Day sales coming up, this is a great time to really save and give. The money from your purchase will go towards funding a year’s worth of breast cancer research hours, totaling at more than $104,000!
Throughout the month of May, shoppers will have access to qualified offers housed on a dedicated section of the Coupons.com site, www.coupons.com/BCRF. When shoppers use these offers to save, Coupons.com will donate 10% of the pre-tax transaction price to BCRF to help fund the critical breast cancer research needed to find a cure – totaling up to $104,350 (2,087 hours at $50/hour).
